2000 was designed to be the easiest way to create common
Web, e-mail, and print documents around the world.
Microsoft Word is currently the application of choice
for creating print documents.
Is it HTML or a
DOC file? The answer is: You probably won't care, thanks
to Word's seamless treatment of the two file formats.
Using XML coding contained within the HTML file,
Microsoft embeds key data about your file--everything
from the word count to the line and fill colors. It's
quite amazing. In fact, when you employ Word in
conjunction with Internet Explorer 5.0, you can view
either a DOC or an HTML file within the browser and
click on Edit to launch the document. You can then make
your changes and simply click on Save--by default Word
saves it in its original format, but the Save As option
lets you easily convert between the two.
